Lionel Messi of Paris Saint-Germain has stated that he is still in contact with three FC Barcelona players.
Messi’s legacy at Barcelona appears to be expanding in size as the club continues to struggle since his departure at the start of the season.
It’s no surprise that Messi, who spent his entire football career at the club until making the shocking transfer to Paris, is still in touch with the Catalan giants.
“Yes, I speak with Kun [Sergio] Aguero, who wasn’t a teammate at Barca but is a close friend. With [Sergio] Busquets and with Jordi Alba as well,” Messi told Sport.
The Argentine maestro was also asked if he has received any support since leaving Spain.
“Those that I expected to support me did so,” he added.
“I took them all by surprise, like me. They were by my side supporting me the whole time,” he concluded.
